First of all, i would request that you stop posting as "Cygwin Xfree86".
Cygwin is a Red Hat TradeMark and XFree86 is owned by XFree86 Inc. as a
Trade mark.
So please do not use Trade mark names as users in your e-mail address.  It

Second there are links of FAQ, if you care to read carefully it will
point users to Books and/or URL where to learn more about
X-Windows systems and what it is.
I have no intentions of covering or dittoing someone else
URL or literature here.

Read my Second answer.  This question cannot be part of FAQ.
Because it is covered at many places on the Internet and
we provide pointers to some of them at our FAQ.
